Genting is currently in speaking with the Nevada Gaming Control Board and giving details on what Resort World Las Vegas will be and how it will be operated. The item that stood out to me is that they will operate the sportsbook themselves.
Goode – Genting Resorts World LV – will operate race and sports books. Goode says will have small gaming salons that comply w/Nevada law

The property will be huge. Howard Stutz from the Las Vegas Review Journal is tweeting specifics (see details on his timeline) about the overall plans. You can see Resorts World Las Vegas renderings here.
It will be interesting to see who they bring in to operate the sportsbook. It’s nice to see that there will be an independent sportsbook operator on the Vegas Strip. We’re still a few years away from Resorts World Las Vegas opening but I can think of one person that would be great for the job.
